Product Highlight / A film you’ll really want to see

September 7, 2022

The average price of carpet per square foot in the U.S. is $7-12. Tack on a cost of roughly $1,200 for installation for a 10 x 14 room, and you’ll realize it’s an expense you don’t want to shoulder.

Patching carpet is difficult if not impossible, and most homeowners will want a full replacement if their carpet gets damaged. Don’t put yourself in that situation. Trust us, Trimaco’s Easy Mask® Protective Carpet Film protects all grades of carpeted floors against paint spills, dirt and foot traffic.

Temporary carpet protection

Carpet film is a must for any paint or construction job where carpet is present. Not only does the carpet surface protector film prevent paint spills, but it also prevents dust, dirt and other contaminants from damaging foot traffic.

Trimaco’s Easy Mask® Protective Carpet Film provides temporary surface protection for up to 30 days. It’s reverse-wound, so installation is a breeze. In addition, this floor protection film is durable and skid resistant, reducing the risk of slipping and falling on the job.

How to install carpet film

When applied, a tight bond is formed, but it won’t leave a sticky residue behind when removed. The film is easily molded into corners and crevices so it’s perfect for stair protection and tight spots. Carpet film is quick and easy to install:

  1. First, vacuum your carpets. Although designed with an adhesive residue, the tackiness of the film will not bond with the carpet if dust and dirt is present.
  2. Next, determine what size carpet film is needed. Trimaco offers options with various widths and lengths. Calculate how many rolls of carpet protection film is needed to completely cover your surface.
  3. If you have a large area to cover, we recommend using a surface film applicator. Durable steel construction promises years of continued use and removes the chore of wrestling with tacky, giving you a smooth application. Use the easy pin and lock system to adjust the applicator’s width to match your roll size.
  4. Roll away! Once your applicator is locked and loaded, simply push forward to rotate the film roll. When your area is completely covered, cut the carpet cover film with a utility knife or box cutter.

Don’t put yourself in a bind with carpet film

We get it. Surface protection products that include a residue backing can be risky. But if installed correctly and removed in a timely manner, Trimaco’s plastic carpet films provide durable, dependable protection. Here are some tricks of the trade we’ve picked up over the years if things do go wrong:

  • Don’t use carpet film on hardwood floors, wool carpet, ceramic tile, laminate flooring or wet/damp carpet.
  • Wait 72 hours after new carpet is installed to apply carpet protection film
  • Spot test the carpet film in an inconspicuous area before applying to your entire surface
  • Never leave carpet film down for more than 30 days. If your job intends to exceed this time frame, explore one of Trimaco’s other surface protection products!
